High quality, affordable rapamycin (and other anti-aging meds)
Hi everyone. Many of you might not realize it, but IAS has made rapamycin available without a prescription. It is the best price I've ever seen (better even than what I saw in pharmacies in Mumbai a couple months ago).
If you go to:
and enter the code "research" you will see the option of buying rapamycin, as well as a selegiline, metformin, and a few other anti-aging meds.
IAS has committed to putting a certain fraction of the revenue (15% I believe) into research.
Because of irritating legal/regulatory challenges, IAS cannot accept credit/debit cards, so you have to pay via wire transfer (e-check is an additional option if you have a bank in the US, probably also Canada). My purchase experience was smooth and quick.
And by the way I've been on rapamycin – 5 mg with a fatty meal (30% better absorption than on empty stomach) once a week – for nearly two months now. Feel fine. Haven't tested my cholesterol yet but the oft-noted side-effect of glucoregulatory dysfunction has not made an appearance. In point of fact, my fasting and postprandial glucose numbers have gone down a touch.
I too have been on Rapamycin and Metformin since June 2018. I got my Rapamycin and Metformin from Dr. Allan Green in New York. I am retired and a full-time RV'er (motorhome) so I am able to travel to where doctors offices are in different states. My homebase is Florida.
I too take my rapamycin with a fatty meal as since January 2018 I have been on a no-sugar Ketogenic diet (the Whole30 diet is very similar). It is now August 2018 and I have lost 65 lbs., feel great and my lab work has been coming back remarkable. Dr. Green is impressed with my insulin resistance too. I think sugar has a lot to do with aging, the recent obesity epidemic, heart disease, cancer and alzheimers (Alzheimers is now called Type lll diabetes!).
In my on-line research I found that the body can survive on either glucose or fat. When the body uses up the glucose it starts burning fat. If the body is burning glucose and creating insulin, it cannot burn fat at the same time. This is why many people (including me) could not lose weight. I also found out that many cancers need glucose to survive. As I mentioned, regular cells can burn either glucose or fat for energy, BUT cancer can only burn glucose for energy and does not have the ablility to switch over to burning fat, thus the cancer dies.
I now eat healty fats, like coconut oil, olive oil, avacados and meats from grass fed cows and free range chickens, as the brain needs healthy fats to survive. And I try not to overload on too much protein as that too can have an adverse effect. Best to fill you plate with healthy dark leafy greens.
If anyone wants to get lab work without having to go to a physician, they can go on-line to www. health-tests-direct.com
Dr. Green gave me this website address. You do have to pay for the lab work yourself, but a good thing is that they are affiliated with two lab draw companies that have facilities in every State in the U.S. I like Quest labs and have used them twice.
Snowbird, thanks for sharing your experience. An amazing success story!
Rawin, first, I need to stress that this is an experimental protocol. And I don't want to be offering medical advice illegally. But the idea promulgated by Dr. Green and other physicians and researchers is that one should take rapamycin permanently – assuming one doesn't have any serious side-effects. But it's always important to test biomarkers before and at various points after to make sure it's helping.
Note that some researchers speculate that taking a break for a month or so every four to six months might not be a bad idea. But the truth is, no one knows. Our group is supporting research to try to get answers to the question of dosing. We should know more within a year or two.
Hi Braian and Rawin,
I just wanted to add that Dr. Green did not just prescribe my Rapamycin and Metformin. He continues to follow my progress. He gave me a treatment plan where he requests specific lab work (Fasting Blood Sugar, Insulin, HgA1c, Chemestry Panel, Lipid Panel, CBC) for one month, 3 months, 6 months and 1 year, that I e-mail to him to evaluate. He also recomments certain supplements and exercise.
I had looked into buying overseas rapamycin, but I wonder about the quality and also whether the U.S. Post Office would confiscate the drug before it reached me. Also I prefer having a professional physician that has been familiar with this rapamycin antiaging therapy ( he even uses it himself) rather than going it alone. I like being able to correspond with him through e-mails (he responds back the same day!) should any adverse side-effects arrive.
So far my lab work from www.health-tests-direct.com requested by Dr. Green has shown good improvements. Dr. Green is happy with the results so far, and I have joined a gym to maintain muscle as I lose weight.
David, just a quick reply about the overseas source I recommended: the company has been in business for many years, and the quality is excellent. Life Extension would not have agreed to work with them had that not been the case.
And I have never heard of anyone in the US having a problem with shipments from them being intercepted.
Hi Brian and all,
I just returned from RAADfest 2018, and have decided to start taking both rapamycin and metformin, both from IAS. I also am applying to participate in a "Low-T" clinical study here in Vegas in which I will apply Androgel daily to my upper arm. My participation in this study will not begin, and is not certain, until after my initial clinical interview early next week.
Does anyone have any thoughts about interactions between these drugs, and about dosing regimes for them, especially rapamycin and metformin? My approach towards taking drugs and supplements, is to take the minimum amount necessary to achieve the desired effect, which in practice will mean taking an initial blood panel, and then ramping up my dosing, taking followup blood panels to objectively monitor my physiological state. I expect to use LEF's Aging blood test panel for this purpose. I just want to hear what others' experiences have been.
I to attended RAADFEST this year. I think I finally found the IAS website that IAS mentioned at their RAADfest booth, I think it is here https://theantiaging.store
I put in for rapamycin and metformin. I see they only take 2 payment options. Bank wire which I absolutely will not do and check2pay. I thought about doing the check2pay but I googled check2pay. It gives their website as https://check2pay.com . I clicked on and that website is gone. Shows it no longer exists. There has to be a better and easier way to get rapamycin and metformin. If IAS will not accept credit cards then they need to set up payment option with a trustworthy 3rd party vendor like paypal.com . Is there anyway some of the RAADFEST organizers could contact IAS and have them use at least paypal.com ?
Does anyone else know how to get it these without going to a DR in the usa?
Mark, with both metformin and rapamycin, the dosing will be tricky. Also, note that both are likely to lower free testosterone a bit (an antiaging response that's part of a "famine" program that they set in motion to some degree). So being on those while in the study might be a problem.
My experience with 6 mg / week rapamycin was that it didn't do squat. Scaling to humans from the mouse studies that showed benefit would mean taking between 15 or so and 95 or so mg. per day. I'm off rapamycin now but on my next experiment I'm going to try taking much more, but only – for safety reasons – for six or so weeks. Stay tuned.
In case you missed Brian’s post; Dasatinib (Sprycell) is now also available along with Rapamycin (Rapa-Pro) from antiaging.clinic. You’ll need to enter “ Research “ where it asks for a referral code.
We now have a good source of dasatinib we can recommend:
Antiaging.clinic, enter code "Research"
60 x 20mg tablets at $1499.99.
That is not pocket change for most of us ($500 a treatment for an avg. male), but it's considerably less than what you'd pay at a typical pharmacy in Europe or the US. International Antiaging Systems (IAS) will continue to try find something more affordable that is also high quality.
The Indian sources we've all been talking about are much cheaper, but I've yet to see assay results for them, so I would not recommend them.
This may help....Usually they are offering enough basic dasatinib for 3 or 4 people.
If so, I would be happy to join in your purchase. Plus, let us cost in having Consumer Labs QC the product to protect everyone's interest.
If you like the idea, please let me know and I will share this with Jim's Team in Az.
Official response from Profound Products.
Profound Products take any negative review seriously because our unblemished reputation for supplying the highest quality products has been hard won over many years, however we know that a good reputation can just as easily be lost by a single allegation on a public online forum alleging that our products are placebos.
Due to recent concerns from a customer, based upon their blood test results, they determined that there was no active Rapamycin ingredient in the RapaPro product.
As this has never happened before, we immediately withdrew this product from sale from all resellers whilst we undertook our own investigation.
We identified the product batch in question and sent a sample to an independent laboratory for analysis.
The independent laboratory reported back that the product sample provided did indeed contain the active ingredient ‘Rapamycin’, however the amount of active ingredient per unit was lower than we had originally specified for manufacture.
We therefore followed this report up with the compounding pharmacy who contract manufactured RapaPro and they undertook their own investigation. They reported back that their initial determination was that there had been an unprecedented formulation error and subsequently the incorrect product strength had been delivered to us.
The product we commissioned for manufacture was specified to contain 5mg of Rapamycin per unit, whereas the independent laboratory test results established that RapaPro contains 3.25mg of Rapamycin per unit.
We are pleased that this was brought to our attention as a result of this customers vigilance and Profound Products have instigated new procedures on the back of this aberration to ensure that such an occurrence should never happen again.
How do we know the reliability of the source....I get significant relief from arthritis in my hands on rapamune...when I shifted back and forth to a supply I got from India, I noticed a significant difference....I finally upped my dose 5x on the ones from India to get the similar benefit. Again, I cycled back and forth from one from Pfizer to one from India and noticed a big difference. I've been on sirolimus (generic) for 2 yrs 3 mos. now
If you have purchased products such as Rapamycin from the
Anti-Aging store you need to be aware that their check or draft processor
has been hacked. I received an email which had all of my Check
Draft information attached. It was from a hacker who was trying to extort me
for payment through Bit Coin or my personal information would be placed online.
I received this scam email last week. The letter claimed that I had bought Cialis when
I actually bought Rapamycin. The letter had a pdf attachment, which I scanned for
Virus with two anti-virus programs. The letter goes into great detail as to how to pay
approximately 800 dollars in Bit Coin to these scammer. I have deleted the mail and
pdf and am contacting my Bank as to a change in my account. Also did a complete
scan of my computer.
